Logging OMi events in an ASCII fileOpen in a New Window

We are running OMi 10.12.103 on Linux server in the distributed environment with 2 gateway & 2 DPS servers using a Load balancer. OML acting as the data collector & forwarding all the alerts to OMi for ticketing in service desk application. Would like to log all the alerts processed in OMi into an ASCII file to have a better control on the alert flow with some attributes like message ID, etc.
I know the following logs will have the data, but dont see the fruitful info.
opr-gateway.log (GTW side)
opr-backend.log (DPS side)

Is there any utility/groovy script available to log the events in an ASCII file on the server (or) any way to achive this.




Cannot find script file while installing BVD patch 10.12Open in a New Window

Hi All, I am trying to install BVD 10.12 on a Windows server where OMi is already installed. The installation of BVD 10.10 was successful but when I am installing the patch of 10.12 on it, it is giving me error of "Input Error: Can not find script file "C:\Program Files\Hewlett Packard Enterprise\BVD\installation\HPE_BVD_1012\scripts\setup.vbs"."

I have checked the location and the .vbs file is present at the location mentioned above. Please help if anybody has any idea about this.

Thanks in advance.


CI Status Alerts using Enrichment RuleOpen in a New Window


We have the use case where we need OMi/RTSM to dynamically assign a CI status alert to a CI when it gets created. I have unhidden the configuration CITs in RTSM and tried using an ER rule to do so but get the following error. e.g. i have this alert and i'm trying to use an ER to assign them as the CI collection meets the ER qualifiers


Any assistance would be appreciated.

Configuring OMi gateway servers to use HTTP instead of HTTPSOpen in a New Window

i've been having an issue getting the URL to update in OMi for access. I've modified the URLS under Platform Administration - Host Configuration to use http instead of https, i've even re-ran the config on the gateway server and for some reason the page will not display if using http. HTTPS still works fine despite OMi showing the new URLs in the settings.  Is there something else i'm missing?


Scheduled task logOpen in a New Window


Does anyone know if the agents log scheduled action attempts/failures anywhere?
We have a scheduled task policy failing, but cannot identify why or what the issue is.
It's logging to the OMi console, but not providing any meaningful information why it's not being successful.



Multiple parameter instances of Sys_FileSystemUtilizationMonitorOpen in a New Window

Hi Folks,

Windows OMI 10.12 IP1
Linux Redhat OM Agent 11.14
Infrastructure Content Pack 1.100 (1.12)

I'm not getting the results I expect and wondering if what I'm attempting to do is possible (I would think that it is)...

I want to deploy a copy of the"Space Availability and Disk IOPS" and with this aspect would like to exclude all /app and /dat filesystems - this is simple enough, I can specify this when I assign and deploy the aspect.

So now I have copied the "Space Availability and Disk IOPS" aspect to another Management Folder and named it "Space Availability and Disk IOPS - Copy".

Now I deploy to the same node the "Space Availability and Disk IOPS - Copy", this time I Exclude /,/opt,/var,/etc and also change the "message group per filesystem" to use DatabaseFS.

I can now see an additional field named "Message group for outgoing messages" appear at the top of the parameters list with the default value set to DatabaseFS - this field appears to be a combined field (if I uncombine it, I see two more fields named "message group" and they are set to OS)...

Anyway, I don't proceed with the uncombine and go with the combined field and value.

I deploy now the "Space Availability and Disk IOPS - Copy" to the same node.

Now any alert from the Sys_FileSystemUtilizationMonitor, regardless of the filesystem exclusions in each instance, the Category always resolves to DatabaseFS??? Why?

What I'm attemtping to achieve is to send all OS related filesystems, such as /var, /opt, /, /etc with the category of OS, while any other filesystem (such as /app and /dat) to use the category DatabaseFS.

I want to be able to determine which group will recieve an alert rather than one group recieving all the alerts?  I can;t seem to be able to specify a different message group form each instance run form the aspects for the Sys_FileSystemUtilizationMonitor parameters.



Repetition rule issue for duplicatesOpen in a New Window


I made a repetition rule to change the severity of those events originated from SCOM, that regards to a certain CI within a specified time interval, e.g 5 minutes.

Appropriate filters are applied, and event match is done via several attributes, such as Node ID, Related CI ID and a SCOM specific attirbute as Custom Attribute.

The main problem that the Treat duplicates as repetition.. checkbox has not been checked, but when a duplicate event arrives, the rule will emerge tha severity.

Is there something that I miss?

Best Regards,

OMi 10.10 - PoliciesOpen in a New Window


We have a large number of policy templates in our environment, and it's getting a little unwieldly to manage and report on.

Is there a simple way (e.g. query SQL database) to determine the following:
- What scheduled tasks policies are assigned to which servers?
- What their schedule is?
- What user accounts scheduled tasks are set to run under?
- What the task is?

Thanks in advance
